In June 2013 I completed a 2 year Foundation Degree in Fashion and Textiles.
It was in the first year that I learnt all my sewing skills, including pattern cutting and construction aswell as being introduced to surface pattern design methods including, knit, embroidery and silk screen printing.
In the Second year I decided to specialise in print, focusing mainly on screen printing. I made many garments to a very high standard, with our final assignment being a TOPSHOP Live Project. The brief was to design two mens oufits for Summer 2014, with our own chosen theme.
My theme – Vintage Americana Summer/2014 takes inspiration from the iconic 50′s American diners, to the sun bleached pastel colours of the Art Deco Miami Beach, with their curves and linear designs.
